This old Red Hook Victorian house sitting right in the middle of the town almost looks inhabited by the ghosts of previous owners…
…although it’s definitely not. Still, it’s fun during the spooky season to imagine what lies behind the front door of some of these intriguing old homes around the Hudson Valley and Catskills, and this one, built at the turn-of-the-century, doesn’t disappoint in that department.
You might hear a creaky floorboard or feel an unexplainable cold breeze pass over you while within the 2,269-square-foot interior, but that’s likely because the old beauty needs a good deal of work to bring it back to fighting shape. Echoes of the past include original floors, wood trim, fixtures, carved banister, and wainscoted sunroom.
The large living room comes with a mirrored Greek-revival mantel above the brick fireplace, but make sure to BYO antique plaster wall restoration skills.
There are four bedrooms and two full baths, along with a walk-up attic that looks like it could be home to a ghost or two, or at least a secretive cult ritual at some point in the past. Give it a future as a home studio, office, or guest room.
If you like mystery like the kind you mind find in this Victorian, located on a .13-acre lot in the center of this bubbly northern Dutchess County village, then stick with Upstater this week for more mysterious (and spooky? Or creepy? Or kooky?) Victorians in the Hudson Valley and Catskills!
